A number of experts shared their thoughts on the prospects of the bill No.2285-d. For example, deputy Andrei Motovilovets believes that the law will be accepted by the next plenary week. This means that all the 3445 amendments have already been approved by the profile committee.

At the same time, Oleksiy Yevchenko, vice-president of the All-Ukrainian Association of the Gambling Industry, does not consider it a bad idea to "locate casinos in hotels and outside urban areas, as well as to place bookmakers in hotels of three, four and five stars." The expert also noted that the draft law was not available to a wide range of people, and this could cause disagreements among some participants in the legalization process.

Vadim Misyura, General Director of the All-Ukrainian Union for the Development of Bookmaking, announced the voting on the concise procedure. The expert also said that four bills on taxation of gambling were not included in the agenda of the profile committee due to the disagreement of the deputies, whose names and position regarding legalization are unknown today.

In the second version of the bill, there is now no mention of the Fund for the Development of Medicine, Culture and Sports, and the placement of financial services points on the territory of the casino is prohibited.

Anton Taranenko, Chairman of the All-Ukrainian Association “Visit Ukraine”, commented on the ban on the placement of ATMs and currency exchange offices:

"Such a service should exist in gambling tourism. And this norm should be spelled out in the legislation. An alternative could be the placement of reception points and ATMs on the premises where a gambling establishment is located, for example, a hotel."

Regarding the mention of the Fund for the Development of Medicine, Culture and Sports, the expert notes that initially it was planned to take 2% from the gambling business to support the mentioned industries, and this condition must be left and concretized, allocating a certain percentage for the promotion of gambling tourism.

"It is impossible to launch the market without an understandable taxation system", - Alina Plyushch about obstacles in the gambling business

Operators of the gambling market will face double taxation. This is spelled out in the tax code, which is in force now. They were going to change it even before the end of 2020, but no changes were made. The Verkhovna Rada did not have time to put forward the bill 2317d, which regulates inconsistencies in the current tax code. But the licensing conditions have already been accepted, and, according to the regulator, work can also begin. What difficulties gambling operators will face - gamingpost.net learned from Alina Plyushch, a lawyer and member of the advisory and expert council under the Gambling Regulatory Commission.
